When we were in Moscow, on our way to Korea in 2002, Phil and I went to see a game at the Spartak stadium. After the game, as we were wandering around looking for the way out, we stumbled across a sign overlooking the training pitches which seemed to sum up the spirit of our trip.
At the time, Israel and Palestine were going through a particularly confrontational phase, and we questioned whether such sentiments could be put into practice in the region. Well, it seems like an attempt to do so is underway: Street Football World reports that a Mini World Cup Tournament for Palestinian-Israeli youth will take place on 15th April, 2005. It’s being organised by the Peres Centre for Peace as part of their “Twinned Peace Soccer Schools” project.
